Descriptive Scene Contest Winner Announced!

Congratulations Caroline Stanton! 

Caroline is our Nate Rocks Virtual Sketchbook writing contest winner. Her depiction of Meet Marie Grace by Sarah M. Buckey and Christine Kornacki was brilliant, and Nate had a fabulous time bringing her words to life!

Nate's sketch of a scene from Meet Marie Grace based on Caroline's description below.

Everyone could have fallen in love with that place. It smelled of sweets and fruit. You heard laughter of children. To the eyes in it, it was everything. The dance studio for carnival was packed. None of the people were crying. All the colors of costumes.

Keep imagining! You never know what's going to appear. ;)
